    DIY Wart Removal

    I just went to the doctor. He took a can of liquid nitrogen that came with a straw. The kit had translucent white mini funnels in it with different sized holes for different sized warts. You can buy liquid nitrogen in a can online. Same with a set of plastic mini funnels. Stick the funnel on the wart. Apply pressure. This isolates the area. Spray on liquid nitrogen for a few seconds. Let it bubble and evaporate for a few secs. Apply again. Then at most a third time. Lift off the funnel. You just freeze dried your wart. Your body thinks the small area got frostbite. If the wart has a raised surface use flat toenail clippers to clip it flat. The skin will turn grayish white in a day (this was on Caucasian completion skin). It is dead skin. It will possibly blister and redden. It may peel ...see more »I just went to the doctor. He took a can of liquid nitrogen that came with a straw.

The skin will turn grayish white in a day (this was on Caucasian completion skin). It is dead skin. It will possibly blister and redden. It may peel or flake off or come off in a clump. Underneath it will be pink and ooze. Once the raw skin is exposed underneath, keep it out in the open and dry. Don't cover it with sweaty plastic bandages. Let it scab up and reheal. Before the dead skin falls off, you can facilitate exfoliation with over the counter wart removal kits. I love the ones with the little skin shaped discs that go right on top of the wart, and you cover it with a round disc shaped band aid. The discs contain salycilic acid which dries out the skin and makes the dead stuff fall off quicker. At night I take off the disc, let it air out and dry. Reapply in am and wear all day long. If you work with your hands, cook food, wash dishes, etc just wear disposable powdered latex gloves to keep it dry. My doc said to use the little discs then after it heals for a while to promote regeneration of that area. If it doesn't work then do the freeze drying again after it heals. Maybe apply liquid nitrogen four or five times if it's deep and aggressive. Doc said warts are caused by a virus that tricks the immune system and hides from it. Freeze drying is man made frostbite he said, and it stimulates the immune system to regenerate tissue and repair the area down at a deep level. For bad deep warts surgery may be needed. This was for a wart on my hand and not a nasty plantar wart like you guys have talked about here.
